In Jilly Cooper’s latest, raciest novel, Rupert Campbell-Black takes centre stage in the cut-throat world of flat racing. Rupert is consumed by one obsession: that Love Rat, his adored grey horse, be proclaimed champion stallion. He longs to trounce Roberto’s Revenge, the stallion owned by his detested rival Cosmo Rannaldini, which means abandoning his racing empire at Penscombe and his darling wife Taggie, and chasing winners in the richest races worldwide, from Dubai to Los Angeles to Melbourne. Luckily, the fort at home is held by Rupert’s assistant Gav, a genius with horses, fancied by every stable lass, but damaged by alcoholism and a vile wife. When Gala, a grieving but ravishing Zimbabwean widow moves to Penscombe as carer for Rupert’s wayward father, it is not just Gav who is attracted to her: a returning Rupert finds himself dangerously tempted. Gala adores horses, and when she switches to working in the yard, her carer’s job is taken by a devastatingly handsome South African man who claims to be gay but seems far keener on caring for the angelic Taggie. And as increasingly sinister acts of sabotage strike at Penscombe, the game of musical loose boxes gathers apace . . . Everybody loves Jilly Cooper: 'Sex and horses: who could ask for more?'

Emphasizing the historical distance between the New Testament and our contemporary culture, The Sermon on the Mount by Scot McKnight, part of the new The Story of God Bible Commentary series, offers helpful contextual insights for those seeking to discern how to live out the Bible in today’s world. Perfect for pastors, students, Sunday school teachers, and lay people alike, this highly anticipated series provides a clear and compelling exposition of the text in the context of the Bible’s overarching story. The authors move away from “application” language, which has been criticized as being too simplistic, encouraging instead a wider perspective and discussion of how the biblical story can be lived today. Offering a new type of application commentary for today’s context, the Story of God Bible Commentary series explains and illuminates Scripture as God’s Story, with each New Testament text examined as embedded in its canonical and historical setting, in order to foster discernment in living the story faithfully and creatively with and for the Church in the 21st Century.

Jonathan Pennington provides a historical, theological, and literary commentary on the Sermon and explains how this text offers insight into God's plan for human flourishing. As Pennington explores the literary dimensions and theological themes of this famous passage, he situates the Sermon in dialogue with the Jewish and Greek virtue traditions and the philosophical-theological question of human flourishing. He also relates the Sermon's theological themes to contemporary issues such as ethics, philosophy, and economics.

Tucked alongside a harbor on Long Island's north shore, Mount Sinai has long attracted residents and visitors. It was the site of an early European settlement in 1664 and the embarkation point of the Revolutionary War foray into enemy territory by Maj. Benjamin Tallmadge, a member of Gen. George Washington's Setauket spy ring. Mount Sinai was a farming and seafaring community in the 1600s, 1700s, and 1800s. In 1891, it became the site of the "sanitary resort" known as the Crystal Brook Park Association. Later, it drew an early community of artists and photographers who captured the natural beauty of the area. Mount Sinai portrays these and many other events of historical and cultural interest.

By 1890, Italian immigrants began settling in Bridgeport to work in the mills and factories along the Schuylkill River. With more than 5,000 residents by 1923, the need for an Italian parish was evident. Rev. John Colantonio was sent to establish the parish, and in 1924, construction began on the lower church. Shortly thereafter, Bridgeports oldest and longest-running event was created in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Feast. Since its beginning the feast has continued to be a family tradition. The vintage images in Our Lady of Mount Carmel Italian Feast feature that tradition and the thousands of visitors who have made a pilgrimage to Bridgeport each year to celebrate the feast.

lmages of America: Mount Vernon takes a visual excursion through the history of the home and neighborhood of our first president of the United States, George Washington. Washington's ancestors came to Northern Virginia over 320 years ago, and by 1786, he had acquired an 8,000-plus-acre tract of land surrounding Mount Vernon. Washington divided this acreage into five farms, which were considered his pride and joy. His detailed management of agricultural affairs, as well as his flair for entertaining, left a visual impression on all that visited. The region, from the late 17th century to Washington's death in 1799, continued to thrive. The estate has withstood and prospered during the selling of Mount Vernon and the surrounding properties, the establishment of the Quaker community in the 1840s, the Civil War, the arrival of the Army Corps of Engineers in 1915, and over 200 years of tourism. Through this volume, containing over 200 images of Mount Vernon and the surrounding vicinity, readers will experience the area's rich history.
